Citrus Lane Review- April 2013

It's that time of the month again!!  Our Citrus Lane box arrived on Saturday, the 20th, but we were out of town so we opened it up today when I came home from work.  Unfortunately, our Groupon promotion is complete so we aren't getting two boxes anymore.  I canceled Jake's box (15m) and renewed Ryan's box (34m) for another 3 months.

For anyone who does not know, Citrus Lane is a subscription box service for babies/toddlers/kids from birth to age 5. Basically, you will receive a surprise box filled with 4-5 (mom approved, top of the line) items tailored to your little ones age.

You can get boxes on a month to month basis for $25/month.. or you can a 6 month subscription for $21 a month! When I signed up, I put in my little one's name, birthday, and gender to ensure that Ryan would receive a  box especially made for him.

Citrus Lane ships their boxes from California on the 15th of every month and arrive on your doorstep between the 17th and 22nd of every month. Did I mention that you also receive free shipping?!
Here we go!  Our box is for a 34m old boy.  I bribed Ryan with cleaning up his mess in the kitchen so we could get his box from the mail.. it worked :)  He was so excited to go to the mail with me and get his box all by himself.

1. Plum Organics Mashups from Plum Organics (1.59) 
This is always Ryan's favorite item in the box.  He is obsessed with these little fruit pouches and I still buy him a ton every time we go to the grocery store.  I took this picture first because  he already had it in his mouth and I wanted to get a picture first this time.  This came with a 50 cent off coupon for one item which we will definitely be using.  I am always looking for coupons for fruit pouches.

2. Paint with Water from Melissa & Doug (4.99) 
I was pretty exicted to see this in the box as well.  I'll be taking the summer off this year and was (just today!) coming up with a summer bucket list for my kids and this item will fit perfectly into that list.  This is perfect for an almost 3 year old. 

3. Keepin Fresh Kids Food Storage from InnoBaby (8.50)
These storage containers are freezer, microwave, and dishwasher safe.  Which is a huge plus since it's so hard to find containers that match all three of these catergories.  These containers will go perfectly with the Skip Hop lunchie we got back in January's box!  We use the lunchie everytime we go out with the kids, so I will definitely be using these as well.  I also got a coupon code for 15% off any purchase.

4. Non-Slip Placemat from Oogaa (8.99)
This placemat is super cute with elephants, monkeys, frogs, and octupus all over it.. perfect for my little animal lover.  Something else, is you can use washable markers on this placemat to keep your little one busy before their meal is served.  Ryan actually grabbed a hold of a pen while I was in the other room and drew all over this placemat.. I was pretty bummed.  However, it was super easy to clean with a kitchen sponge.  It also rolls up perfectly to fit inside your diaper bag to take along when you go out to eat.  This came with a coupon code for 30% off any purchase

5. Shampoo & Body Wash from The Honest Company (9.95)
This is a full size bottle of head to toe shampoo and body wash for the whole family.  I have heard of the Honest Company recently but have yet to try out any of the products, I'm excited to try this on myself and the boys.  I also have a 20% off coupon with any purchase.
